I am encountering the same problem described here: Unable to set path. In every module where I can edit a page, a p appears after the word 'Path'. I can click on it; clicking on it highlights some of the text.

How do I fix this issue? enter image description here

the path shows what html tag your in. It really is pointless. Mainly use for reference. it has nothing to deal with on your links just an editor feature. – xLRDxREVENGEx Jun 16 '11 at 18:11
@xLRDxREVENGEx: This was helpful. I'd be happy to push the answer to you if you make it an answer (assuming this is truly the answer since I wouldn't know if it wasn't :) ) – Avery Chan Jun 16 '11 at 21:50
Done. I added some examples and made it sexier for feature readers – xLRDxREVENGEx Jun 16 '11 at 22:01

The path in the editor is just for reference, most of the time users do not even bother looking at it and those that do use if to see what html tag there are in.


This is just a sample paragraph
This is just a sample span
This is just a simple blockquote

If i was in the blockquote tags the path would be PATH: blockquote or in the span PATH: span. All in all the feature is use full to most and use less to some OR use full to beginners and use less to advance

Just a side note it does not have anything to do with the path of your site that is the line below the title field

So it's not the file path. Haha. That's why I thought it was broken. – Avery Chan Jun 16 '11 at 22:11
@Avry: Correct! – xLRDxREVENGEx Jun 16 '11 at 22:55
